Yankees close to signing first baseman
"We haven't signed anything," agent John Boggs said. "There are a few things to straighten out, but we're moving in a positive direction. We're hopeful we'll get it done shortly."
Clark, a switch hitter, spent last season with the New York Mets, batting .232 with 16 home runs in 254 at-bats. He has a career batting average of .268 with 175 home runs in nine major league seasons, the first seven with Detroit.
On the Vazquez front, the only holdup in the Yankees signing him to a four-year, $45 million contract extension is owner George Steinbrenner's approval, the New York Daily News reports.
